Hidalgo is a 10 year old Medicine Hat Paint with one blue eye. I purchased him as a trail horse for my husband and he is sitting too much and does not have a job so unfortunately for his best interest I need to find him a home where he is ridden consistently. Hidalgo is a great trail horse, can ride English or Western. Has been around cows, dogs and other farm animals. He ties, loads, baths, stands for farrier and vet. He is UTD on everything. He can't be turned out 24/7 on grass has he has had a mild case of laminitis. The only food he gets other than free choice hay is Farrier's Double Strength formula and Resmission. No grain, just that and free choice salt. I can share all his vet records. He is in great health. Hidalgo is 15.2 hands. He will go with his fly mask and blanket. He is barefoot and needs to stay that way. If you need to ride on rough terrain he will need some kind of boot. Farrier advises not to use nail shoes. He needs someone that needs a riding partner and someone who will ride him consistently. Hidalgo is not a beginner horse unless you have a trainer. Not to say he would do anything but he may not listen to you if you don't know what you are doing. He needs a confident rider to go out on trails. He does not buck, bite, or rear. Has had professional training. He takes light cues, do not need spurs or whip. Great home is a must and I will check vet, farrier references. He is also for lease so if he is leased out then the ad will come down. I really don't want to sell him but he needs a job to stay fit and he is too young to just be a pasture ornament.

Thank you for your consideration!
